Comment: Confusing comic-book style futuristic thriller in the saem vein as Robocop and Lawnmower man is made worth while by the daziling special effects and an over the top performance by Dolph Lundergrenas a psychotic preacher. The bland Keanu Reeves gives another unemotional performace somewhat similar to that of the Matix as Johnny, a guy who smuggles data through the use of a chip in his head, but once he finds that he has been set up he must get the data out of his head before it kills him or falls unto the wrong hands. Rapper Ice-T also makes for an effective perfomance as the leader of a street gang who are Johnnys last hope at survival, you can also see old school punker Henery Rollins in a small but effective role as well. Not much originality in the script and the fact that Reeves only has about two different emotions through out the whole movie does help the fact that he is reading form a less than average script. Even though you won't care a bit about the plot several nicely filmed action scenes (that are often quite violent) will keep people interested until the credits role and even though you may not have a clue what is going on, it gets an extra half star for adding that action in there to make it enjoyable. So if there is nothing else better on a rainy night this could very well just be what your looking for.
